Introduction to Mindfulness Course


Does your life feel, chaotic, madly busy? Is your mind over-full, do you feel like you are juggling too many things at once?

Are your thoughts creating peace and a sense of wellbeing, or stress? Are your thoughts creative and productive and encouraging or do they drag you down?

Come and check out how mindfulness can help. So many things are out of our control but you can choose how you respond.

Mindful awareness is about learning to pay attention, in the present moment, and without judgment. This reduces our tendency to work on autopilot, allowing us to choose how we respond & react.

Mindfulness teaches us to calmly respond to situations and stressors, to recognise our unhealthy habits, to become more patient and tolerant, less judgemental and kinder to ourselves and others.

A 2011 Harvard study showed that participating in a Mindfulness meditation program made measurable changes in the brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress.

Maya I really would like to thank you for holding such a wonderful course. I feel like I have already received so much positive outcomes from participating in and no doubt will continue to do. I feel as though I’ve gained the tools to enable myself to become a calmer /happier/more content person. Its allowed me to put aspects of my life into perspective.

This week we wrapped up a 6 week mindfulness course with amazing coach Maya Nova 🙏🏼 All I can say is “Wow” & “What a RealityCheck ”. We became so aware during our sessions of habits many of us had including “auto-piloting through life”, “negative thought trains” & the fact that as well as leading demanding/busy lives we were wasting so much time & energy in our own minds! The tools & outtakes from this course were phenomenal for me personally & many of my colleagues have expressed the same. How absolutely lucky we are that Lotto New Zealand provides us with such amazing education like this!
